1:26 pm
meeting today in his memory. i also have another item as you know as a city, we have been working with other cities to deal with the issue of homelessness within our veteran population. we have been involved with the hundred days campaign to house veterans in 2012. president obama established a goal to end veteran's homelessness by 2015 which i think is doable and the department of housing and urban development came together to establish the hud slash veterans housing program which, is models after section eight and san francisco has received 500 of the vouchers to date. we have
1:27 pm
learned that our chronically homeless veterans were having a difficult time finding apartments in the private marked in fact many veterans have had vouchers issued in 1212 and so what we have here is a situation where we have a federal agency, the mayor's office and housing authority and human services agency who have focused to encourage private landlords to provide housing for these veteran and is a few months ago one of those landlords the owner of 2524 mission street came forward to offer to least his 33 stew apartments which are above the restaurant on joule which, is now the -- restaurant to least those apartments to
1:28 pm
veterans who have those vouchers and i think for those of us who really see the need to address this issue this is a very exciting possibility. you know the idea is that we would have a process that actually allows these veterans who have dedicated so much to this country to have housing that is it's really important. my office has been working with the director for the city former supervisor name to move this forward so that those units can be made valuable to those veterans here in san francisco and so to make that happen i'm asking the city attorney to help draft legislation that will allow a toursist hotel like the one i'm talking about to use those units for residential purpose for homeless veteran and is then create a mechanism so
1:29 pm
that down the road, it can be existing use at the tourist hotel and there is a planning code in which acceptions were made recognizing the importance of actually dealing with the needs of these veteran and is we are also making sure that we are working with the affordable housing and low increase communities to make sure at that it's consistent with the other policies that we have in place and again we continue to work closely with the mayor's office i hope that has led this effort and negotiate with the landlords about this possibility and i also note that yesterday, the federal government i announced that san francisco has reduced homelessness among our veterans by 60% since twee 11 and even though that is something to be proud of, i think we can do more in this effort, i think we should mo
